Grinder - Island Spice (aka Zanzibar) - Ukuva iAfrica
Island Spice (aka Zanzibar) is a fascinating blend that has acquired a cult following... from a Cafe in Nice where customers break out in a near riot when they don't have their regular 'fix' of Zanzibar, to individuals all over the world who are prepared to go to extraordinary lengths to get their hands on their Zanzibar Spice...
Salt, sesame seed, fennel, coriander, black pepper, aniseed, cinnamon, ginger, clove, garlic, onion, star anise.... The ideal spice blend for slow-cooked or braised dishes of lamb, young goat, chicken or pork. Rub onto meat coated with a little oil - leave to marinade for an hour or two before grilling.
Dry-fry a generous grinding before adding to couscous with slivers of almond and dried apricots, or in a potato and onion bake.
